    I'll start by saying I'm rooted with bugless beast v0.9

    I can't find my stock messaging app on my droid. When I go to manage applications it lists com.android.mms as 0.00 kb.I took the Mms.apk from the virginoem-backup I have and pushed it to /system/app/ then tried to push it to /data/app/ but nothing works. I'm not even sure if this is the right apk, I'm just trying anything I can think of.

    I've been using handcent so long that I don't know how long it's been missing.

    Any ideas?

    oh boy. Well if you are using Handcent (like me) then you dont really need it correct? Could I delete that app and Handcent would work fine?

    Yea you could essentially get rid of it although I wouldn't recommend it (surprised?) because handcent has been giving me issues as far as it not receiving mms messages. I wanted to get rid of handcent to see if it was causing my mms problems and when I did I realized that I now had no way to recieve/send any messages.

    You can adb push the stock Mms.apk to /system/app and and probably chmod 644 it and you will have it back....

    FYI this also seemed to fix my issues as far as handcent not being able to receive mms.

    Sorry I should have already asked, do you have the android sdk installed on your computer and are you familiar with adb? if not I think we can do it with root explorer.

    If we could do it with root explorer that would be great. I'm not familiar with either.

    Thanx
